Thanks for snapping these, Caro!

For our last Bubbles & Bloggers meet up, we set out on an “It Girl” shopping tour with Shop The City around the District. The event was Sex And The City-themed (one of my all-time favorite shows, obviously) where each attendee channeled a character. My favorite character is probably Samantha (does Carrie’s closet count as a character? If it does, then that’s my favorite.) but I really wanted to wear this Zaful wrap top, so I went all in and channeled my inner Charlotte.

This look was a bit more Upper East Side Princess than my personal style, but it was fun to trade out my gold stud earrings for pearls and pull out a pair of ladylike heels I hadn’t touched in well over a year. I can’t imagine that Charlotte would wear a top with this deep of a V-neckline, and her hair would be in a perfectly polished pony, so I’m going to say I put my own spin on this look. 

We started the tour on 14th Street and visited locale favorites like Salt & Sundry, Miss Pixie’s, and Current Boutique, then hopped on a private shuttle to Georgetown. On the other side of the city, we browsed through upscale shops like Lynn Louisa, but made sure to hit some thriftier spots like Reddz Trading and EllaRue. We ended the shopping spree at a Whistle & Wild pop-up at the Graham, where we sipped bubbly and had a styling lessons from DC Style Factory’s very own Marisa Gonzalez. 

If you aren’t familiar with DC’s retail scene, or are visiting from out of town, Shop The City is a fun way to experience the way that real Washingtonians shop, as well as check out some spots that are under the tourist radar!
